Sacha Baron Cohen Is Being Sued By Roy Moore

OMG September 7, 2018 By Hugo

The disgraced Republican Roy Moore is suing the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen for $95 million after he tested a 'paedophile' detector on him.

Like many before him, Moore claims he was duped into appearing on Cohen's latest show Who is America? following a chat with one of the show's standout characters 'General Erran Morad', an Israeli 'anti-terror expert'.

In what is argubally the most uncomfortable moment of the series,  Cohen motions a 'paeodophile detector' over his chest. It doesn't go off, but when he waves it over Moore, an alarm goes off.

"In Israel they've developed a machine that is used in schools and playgrounds to detect anyone coming in," Cohen says dressed head-to-toe in prosthetics as 'General Morad'.

"If they detect the paedophile, the wand alerts the law enforcement and schools within a hundred-mile radius."

However, after continually going off around Moore, Morad concedes, "It must be malfunctioning."

Visibly incensed by the embarrassment caused to him, Moore leaves the interview, exclaiming, "I've been married for 33 [years] and never had an accusation of such things," he says, and then walks out of the room.

Of course, that isn't quite true. During the election to become Alabama's senator, Moore was surprisingly beaten by Democrat candidate Doug Jones after nine women accused him of sexual misconduct. However, Moore denied all accusations and maintains his innocence. 

What did you make of Sacha Baron Cohen's new show? Did it live up to the hype?

Or has Cohen's provocative brand of satire run its course?
